Do you take your four legged, 1,000 pound equine family member on vacation with you? Why not make your next trip to a nationally accredited dude ranch where you can bring your own horse? Members of the Dude Ranchers' Association invite you and your horse to experience the 'Original Western Vacation.' Be sure to bring the proper ‘foot wear’ for your horse (you’ll most likely be in the mountains) and the proper vet papers, especially if you are crossing state lines. But, most importantly, make sure your trusty steed can is in shape and can handle the extra hours under the saddle. With the comfort of having your own with you these dude ranch locations will inspire you with the beauty of the American West. Ranches offer three types of experiences you can look for; spectacular trails, informative clinics and true cowboy cattle work. Take your pick of these horse friendly ranches below and bring your own horse to these locations.
Extraordinary Trail Rides
At these ranches you are going to find freedom in the sunshine and wide open spaces. It’s the sort of trip where you forget to worry about all the different troubles in your life.
Attend a clinic with your horse to build your relationship skill set as horse and rider partners.
Cowboy Cattle Work
Take your horse to these ranches for arena work, cutting, cattle drives, roping, the original old western style cowboy vacation.
